themselves. here's one reason why the paterno family might be worried. cnn had purported e-mails that were leaked to us involving an exchange among penn state officials, and in one of those e-mails they discuss a plan after that 2001 show incident to notify jerry sandusky and, among other things, to notify outside authorities, child welfare. but in another e-mail there's a reference from the athletic director that he spoke to joe paterno and then the director changes his mind about contacting child welfare authorities. now the paterno family just yesterday issued this statement that reads in part, joe paterno did not cover up for jerry sandusky. joe paterno did not know jerry sandusky was a pedophile. joe paterno did not act in any way to prevent a proper investigation of jerry sandusky. to claim otherwise is a distortion of the truth. so, ali, we'll see how the free report may address all of this. >> one of the big problems, it's interesting, it apparently didn't really aect university's fundraising last year, but also denying any knowledge of the sex abuse is former penn state president
